How to convert html to pdf using javax.servlet.ServletOutputStream or

I have downloaded the evaluation version of Aspose.Html for java to see whether it’s suitable.

The online example only shows how to save a pdf on the file system, but i want to write the pdf to a javax.servlet.ServletOutputStream. Is it possible?

Here’s the code snippet:

HTMLDocument html = new HTMLDocument(is, "");
HtmlRenderer renderer = new HtmlRenderer();
renderer.render(new PdfDevice(new PdfRenderingOptions(), "newdoc.pdf"), html);

PdfDevice constructor only accepts:
A. file name

but it’s not clear how write the pdf to a java OutputStream or a ServletOutputStream using option B or C.

Hey Farhan. Just want to follow up on this: is supported as a destination when rendering HTML to PDF?

We would like to update you that the issue HTMLJAVA-139 has been resolved and the constructor PdfDevice( stream) will be supported in the upcoming release. However, you can use a workaround approach for now, as in the lines of code below: fos = new FileOutputStream("newdoc.pdf");
OutputStreamAdapter outputStreamAdapter = new OutputStreamAdapter(fos);
renderer.render(new PdfDevice(new PdfRenderingOptions(), outputStreamAdapter), html);

Please download attached java class for your kind reference.

We hope this will be helpful. Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
